More on How We Block Ourselves

More thoughts on how I block myself. If I'm resenting and blaming someone else or resenting myself, I'm blocking my own energy. In anger and frustration, it is difficult to see the possibilities. It is difficult to take responsibility for what I have created and move on, because I'm stuck in my anger.

The feeling of resentment is a high. It is absolute righteousness and it feels good to feel better than someone else. Anger is down-right addictive. Feeding my righteousness feeds the anger which keeps me trapped and unfulfilled.

If I want success, money, healing, happiness–whatever it is and I am in resentment, that resentment blocks my success-slows me down. My slow progress confirms that my resentment is justified and I'm stuck in a downward spiral.

Next time – Getting out of the downward addictive spiral.
